This book is both a solid introduction to Red Hat Linux 9 and a concise introduction to more advanced system administration and networking subjects. It is well written and full of useful instructional examples. The format is simple and to-the-point, with enough context to explain but not overwhelm. Though printed in 2003, much of the information is still very useful.

One of the reviewers points out that the book misses one of the more common setup schemes, being a Windows OS (ex. XP) as a host with a Red Hat installation on top. To avoid the hazards newbies face with dual booting setups, download VMware Player followed by the Red Hat 9 CDs included with the book. Users could also go for the Fedora 5 virtual machine download (or any other distro you like) distributed also through VMware''s site. Users can then run Linux from within their Windows OS host operating system just like any other Windows application.

I am an intermediate Linux Admin and I have to admit I like this book. It is targeted for beginner''s but I have learned many things that I missed from from other books. Because of its very gentle reading style and clear examples I filled a lot of holes in my foundation. (No pointy head, propeller hat cryptic reference stuff) Good chapter examples explaining permissions, groups, setuid, samba, nfs. There was a chapter on navigating thru all the GUI apps and what they do -- just enough good data without overdoing it. After reading this beginner book, I think I can now say with confidence.. I am a better intermediate Linux user. Great work!

I just started this book and right off the bat I have a major complaint. Now understand I''m a newbie to Red Hat Linux. Most newbies dual boot from one hard drive to either Windows or Linux. This book offers absolutely no info on partitioning your HD to accommadate two operating systems. So beginners beware. I had to purchase "Red Hat Linux 9 in 24 hours" to walk me through the setup. Wrox Press is usually more thorough, especially with their "beginner" books.

It took 7, Yes Seven!! authors to put this book together. On the one hand it is a good book to get you started, I did not have any trouble Installing from the disks, however, for a beginner, perhaps it is not the right book, there are too many mistakes, and assumptions made. The one quality this book lacks, is that each author did not read each others sections of the book, otherwise there would have been less mistakes. On the whole, if you want to learn about Red Hat Linux, look elsewhere of this book.
